Thank You New York!

Last night we finally fulfilled our longtime dream of doing a show in New York! After a long trip from Amsterdam to Brussels to London to New York, we caught a cab straight from JFK Airport to Santos Party House and rocked the place straight off the plane. The crowd couldn’t have been better, thanks for the love New York! Also major thanks to Rich Medina, Q-Tip and Vashtie for making it happen! Check out the pictures in the gallery.
Next up Philly!
